SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • Hotfix 952939 is installed on a Systems Management Server 2003 Service Pack 3 (SP3) site server.
  • Hotfix 941214 or hotfix 941395 is installed on this site server.
  • A monthly-by-Weekday recurring advertisement is configured to run after the first Sunday in November.
In this scenario, the trigger for the advertisement skips November. The next occurrence is in December.

Additionally, the Software Metering Agent generates multiple files when Software Metering Agent is triggered by the scheduler. The following information is logged in the Scheduler.log file:
Sending message for schedule 'Machine/{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000031}' (Target: 'direct:SWMTRReportGen', Name: '') Scheduler 5/12/2009 12:00:00 AM 2152 (0x0868)

Sending message for schedule 'Machine/{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000031}' (Target: 'direct:SWMTRReportGen', Name: '') Scheduler 5/12/2009 12:00:01 AM 3684 (0x0E64)
Adjusting next occurrence for DST; subtracting 1 hour. Scheduler 5/12/2009 12:00:01 AM 3684 (0x0E64)
The DST Adjustment will create a next occurrence time in the past, adding another interval [1 day(s)]. Scheduler 5/12/2009 12:00:01 AM 3684 (0x0E64)
Original Start time: 01/01/2005 12:00:00 AM Scheduler 5/12/2009 12:00:01 AM 3684 (0x0E64)
DST Adjusted Next occur time: 05/13/2009 12:00:00 AM Scheduler 5/12/2009 12:00:01 AM 3684 (0x0E64)
SMSTrigger '000118C000500008' will fire at 05/13/2009 12:00:00 AM. Scheduler 5/12/2009 12:00:01 AM 3684 (0x0E64)
This problem occurs because of a miscalculation of the next occurrence time during the daylight saving time.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the daylight saving time change is not considered correctly when you schedule the next occurrence of the advertisement.
